Get in[edit]

The closest international airports are Bergerac and Angouleme, both less than an hour away. Bordeaux is about 1.5 hours away, and of course Ribérac has its own local airport shared with Ribérac Saint-Aulaye (Code LFIK).

Ribérac is small, you can walk. Though the Café de Palais offers bikes for hire in the main square of the town.

See[edit][add listing]

See the market on a Friday, it's one of the largest in the area and truly fantastic. During high season, there are weekly live groups outside the Cafe Colonnes in the evening. It is a lovely place to take the whole family. There are four outside swimming pools to be enjoyed during the day for all age groups and abilities, or maybe you would like to play tennis on the municipal tennis courts. There is also a fantastic camp site where you can hire canoes and take a leisurely sail down the river Dronne, or if the mood takes you, there are numerous spots where you can swim in the river or picnic beside it. There are also numerous fetes during the summer season where you can either watch the entertainment, eat the wonderful food on offer (quite often a hog roast), buy French antiques or just soak up the sun while meeting the friendly residents.
